How's Your Mandarin?

At BISS Puxi we believe it is important to study Mandarin whilst living in Shanghai to make the most of the your time here and we offer the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK) to help students, parents and friends assess their progress.

Our school is a testing centre for the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK) which is an international standardized exam that tests and rates Chinese language proficiency. It assesses non-native Chinese speakers’ abilities in using the Chinese language in their daily, academic and professional lives.

We have been offering the HSK at BISS Puxi for a year for our secondary students as well as parents and friends who have shown an interest in taking this test. So far 29 students and parents have taken the test at our school with 100% pass rate. The next test date is coming up on Sunday 1 December and applications are open now for students and parents.

Letters will be coming home with full details about how to apply for the test, the main details are outlined also below.
